Nina Fogelman, through her agency Ancient Summit Enterprises, has been instrumental in our literacy project. Nina is an American deeply committed to sharing the beauty of the Peruvian Andes and helping its people through her business. The Cacsi Community Elementary School has been one of the main beneficiaries of her involvement with our project. Nina and several of her friends provided funds to build bathrooms and a library (including books and much needed furniture) for the school. It is amazing to think that an elementary school may have no bathrooms but unfortunately that can be the case in very rural areas of the Andes, such as Cacsi.
Nina and friends have also contributed with books and furniture to elementary schools in the Urinsaya and Amantani Communities. Two additional libraries in other Amantani Communities are being planned with their support. We would like to give special thanks to Jim and Ed Malcolm, Dovie Horvitz, Kristin Hotti, Rick DeTurck, and their children Philip and Alex and to the Global Impact Volunteer Expeditions (GIVE) Foundation led by Frank and Agnes Shooster.
Nina has also started an education project in a community near Cusco city, Peru.
